to adapt. that was not so much an advantage because the environment did not change quickly. it is the normal process of biological evolution, changing behavior over thousands of generations. it is good enough for non medallion species until the cretaceous extinction event sixty-five million years ago. we see geological evidence of it everywhere in the world, something dramatic happened to change the environment suddenly sixty-five million years ago. there are theories about it having to do with a meteor but we do know the environment changed. thousands of these non minnelli and species who could not adapt very quickly died out and that is when mammals became prominent in their ecological niche. anthropomorphize biological evolution and said it started -- as mammals evolved. by the time you get to primates it is no longer just a plant covering in the brain, it has all these convolutions. you are familiar with what the brain looks like. to expand its surface area. in the human or any primate it has all these fissures and curves. you can stretch out in theory and make a flat s
this new environment, be it political or social environment has changed. people want to do more. sometimes people will do it as volunteers. want to be part of a cause. the one to be part of the solution. if there is a problem out there, a social problem, they want to help. i can see more people, more women, doing that. we should be talking about this and engaging more people. i think there are a lot of women leaders who would be happy to help impart their knowledge and experience. 20 years ago, there were not forums like this. he did not have the secretary of labor like me. these were things that occur but they did not happen by accident. a lot of people have been working to help make this a reality and it is a reflection of what is happening in our country. i have to give a lot of credit to our president and people like speaker nancy pelosi and senator barbara boxer and supervisor glory molina. >> would you go back into elected office? >> there is a lot of issues i care about -- health care, health care disparities, environmental justice, that is a big issue and will continue to be until
students. we want to create a safe learning environment. what happened in newtown, first let me say my prayers and thoughts go to that entire community. we need to change our security protocol. we're all anxiously waiting for a report to come out in newtown, to tell us where the weaknesses are, but until that time, our community has made a collective decision to protect our 8,000 students, to put in our police officers in each of our nine schools. >> when we look at republican-led legislatures that want to arm teachers in an effort to prevent another tragedy, this is also in coordinate with what we saw in webster, new york, where four firefighters showing up basically to a trap, two were shot and killed, two others were injured, in webs sister, new york, but i want to play what one of your own colleagues, michael nutter had to say about a plan like yours taking place in their area. take a listen. >> i guess, you know, out of last week's bizarre press statement, it wasn't a press conference, i guess mr. lapierre would then say that firefighters need to have armed guards go with them. i
, will this be a better environment for speaker boehner? there are these new members that are about to go to washington in january and they're watching the table being set and how both sides are plague off each other. what's your opinion come january? >> absolutely. the political environment will be much easier and here's why. you don't have a bombastic tea party leader, if you will, and adam west from florida and jim demint and you'll see a lot of new members coming in looking back at congress and saying, i don't even want any parts of that so moving forward i want to be able to move with the other side of the aisle to move pieces of legislation forward. look, 99.9% of what karen said i agree with, but the other 1% here and this is a strange situation to be in, is that a lot of republicans, god bless them, quite frankly, are not willing to give up on their principles and, you know, again, when you're a federal legislator here i admire that, but in order to move things across the ball here you have to be able to compromise here and you have to give up something here and i think in the 113th congress yo
for carrying it out. family life, community life, health, education, the environment, national security, civic life. in these domains, cash incentives, monetary arrangements, financial deals may crowd out values and attitudes that are central to what makes those goods the goods they are. if this is true, what are the occasions for the way we should make about these questions? one application is we can't decide where markets are, where they serve the public. and where they don't belong that reasoning together, without having a public debate about the likely effects of marketers sort of social practices and to debate about how those goods should be valued, whether it's teaching and learning for environmental protection were civic life. this is a debate we have not had in this country over the past few decades. we've been governed by a kind of market face it just assumes that are considered the primary instrument for achieving the public good. we haven't really questioned that. we shied away from these to be and the effect has been markets have reached into more and more spheres of life, includin
not think it logical that we protect the children of our nation in a school environment. it can be gun consistent with their learning atmosphere and that's my challenge to bring experts together to accomplish that. >> you were part of the news conference on friday. i want to play you a little bit of what wayne lapierre had to say there. >> the truth is that our society is populated by an unknown number of genuine monsters. people that are so deranged, so evil, so possessed by voices and driven by demons that no sane person can ever possibly comprehend them. >> of course he's the executive vice president of the nra. i have to ask you, when you listen to that sound bite, the question that rings in my head is whether he just arctic you could y arctic could you lawsuited a good reason for gun control as opposed to against gun control. what's your view? >> i think you have to put guns in the hands of the right people. for example, hunters obviously have a need for their own weapons. and there's rec accurareational and so on. but we want to protect our airplanes, our passenger and we've done
an environment there was spirit and was spun by the development of late george w. norris who came to nebraska and fought for the unicameral legislature and nonpartisan. some people say he did it because he wanted to save money. i am sure it saves money to have one house, but the main reason he did it is to get rid of the conference committees that we go through the back here that are a puzzle. i was at a conference committee on the football field and bate changes five times before they blow the whistle. so what we have in nebraska is something that is officially nonpartisan and looks nonpartisan, so that is a backdrop for me. so when i come here in a partisan environment, i said i don't have to subscribe to partisan environment. mauney goal and my team as the governor is to run nebraska, not republican or democratic or east or west urban, i represent all the people even those that voted against me. i've taken that approach back here to represent all the people, not just other people. >> did you ever think about becoming an independent? >> the democratic party never pushed it out to greet you
a plausible story. president know about that decreasing security environment? was he told about the attacks on the conflict of which he told about the 16 august cable where the investor said if he is attacked we cannot defend this place. what did the president know about the security environment in libya before the attack? during the attack, what orders did they make, why were they not carried out? and afterward, why did he pushed a story line that was misleading? as to ambassador rice, after this report, i hope the american people will understand that the story she told on 15 september was completely out of line with reality on the ground, and i believe firmly now more than ever that the story she told on five national television shows was more of a political story than informing the american people. the talking points -- who changed the talking points? who took out references to al qaeda? al qaeda references are all over the original report and all over the cables coming out of libya and tripoli. when she said security at the consulate was substantial, and strong, that was the furthest th
: that is the environment we have been in and for much of december, the worries continue and they escalated and never thought we were coming to some sort of bipartisan agreement, we didn't get exactly that so we continued to sell off a you see that the dow is down 89 points which is almost 3/4%. the nasdaq and the is and be down 8%. when you talk about the month of the summer the most major averages the to the downside 1.3% and diaz and be handed out virtually flat. despite a great year on wall street they are high here. here's a look at the vix. the vix is up 4%, it is known traditionally as volatility and a fear engage and that is what we are seeing. is up 20.6 and that is the first time we have seen of except this time. people are nervous. ashley: thank you. president obama just arriving at the white house after cutting short his hawaiian vacation. the senate trickles back into washington for a last attempt at the fiscal cliff compromise. shibani: team coverage, peter barnes standing by at reagan national airport where lawmakers are revising falling snow delays and we start with rich edson on capi
about the entire financial environment in the country? >> i think washington's playing with fire. i don't think they realize this is not a game. people right now are unsettled, and they are not certain about the future, and they are adjusting budgets because people plan right now. job creators make their budgets for next year now. dagen: right. >> we're deciding how many people to hire. i have a buddy in rhode island running a factory with 500 employees and told the four department heads give me plans for 20% across the board cut if the fiscal cliff hits. i mean, this is the wrong posture. we don't want people that create jobs, people that decide how many people will be hired in the next year to be having -- to have bad karma now. we want people looking forward in a positive way, how we're going to grow into new markets, how to export more. we need the country to be more competitive so we can export to china, mexico, export to canada. that's critical, growth. if we have growth, we hire more people. dagen: drew, thank you, great to see you. happy new year. >> thank you, go rg iii. dagen:
to inspire individuals in my work environment or on the job. after i went on to college, the campus asked me to be a recruiter for them. i went back to my high school and got a record number of people to apply to the university. the power and the emotion, the fire in the belly is there in us. for people that did not have role models, they need to be inspired. i did not always get it from women. find it in other places, all that helps. that is the kind of energy that was given to me. "i'm going to take a risk. i may not be perfect at it." >> do you work all the time? >> i am in mourning person -- morning person. >> i could be on the west coast and i am not at 5:00 a.m. and people on the west coast would say i'm crazy. i will lose the thought so why do wit. i am an early riser. that was something that was instilled in us. >> is 5:00 a.m. kind of typical? >> yes. >> how late did you work? >> i tried to get in at a decent hour. as a pastime, people do not think that we do this but i like to cook. i try to eat healthy. i will do cooking of vegetables and light entrees. something i enjoy is making
to create an environment that's friendly to business and capital so that businesses and capital come here, and then we'll have more in the future, and we can grow our consumption, and we can grow our well being. we can have 4% growth. but the reason why you need to read the book is that it makes sense, and we all need to become advocates for doing the sense bl thing. because the sensible thing is the last thing people in washington are talking about right now. [laughter] >> and i think there are four chapters in the book that sort of sum it up; president bush's forward, my introduction, brendan's chapter on why growth, and kevin's chapter, chapter 6, which presents three or or four, as he just outlined, quick ways to growth. maybe that's the best answer to your question. other questions? >> actually, could i just follow on that for a second? >> sure. >> one of the goals we have in this book is to change the conversation to growth. we have this debate between austerity and growth. growth really matters, okay? if you're growing, all right? to get the economy growing, people want to prosper,
? >> i don't think you make those decisions in this kind of environment if against this kind of a deadline. i think all we can do right now and i'm convinced of this, the only thing we can do is head off the rate increases for 98% of the american people. >> be more focused is it what you're saying. >> and you can't do that behind closed doors. you can't make those structural changes and entitlements without a thorough national discussion. >> i want to you listen to wyoming republican senator john barrasso. take a listen. >> when i listen to the president, i think the president is eager to go over the cliff for political purposes. i this i he sees a political victory at the bottom of the cliff. he gets all this additional tax revenue for new programs, he gets to cut the military, which democrats have been calling for for years and he gets to blame republicans for it. >> so, congressman, are democrats overplaying how detrimental the fiscal cliff will be? as we remember, this is really more of a fiscal slope. employers have already baked in the 2011 tax rates, for instance, for
government because it is potentially dangerous to the environment. that is nothing like a danger to oil trading that the fiscal cliff is now causing. take a look at prices. you said today, we've got back a little bit and pulled back a little bit after run-up yesterday. this is not a story about price. this is a story about volume, lack of volume. take a look at the volume of oil trading on the most traded contract, wti, that's west texas intermediate at the cme group, if february of 2011 the volume was 934,000 contracts a day. almost a million contracts a day. by november of this year, a month ago, got half of that. yesterday the volume was 175,000. oil money is on the sidelines. our producer just gave me the latest volume today. trading is going to continue only for another 15 minutes or so. 273,000 contracts traded just today. that is half of the typical volume. people are so scared about the fiscal cliff, this money, david, now is sitting on the sidelines and doing nothing for investors. that is what the fiscal cliff has wrought in the oil market. david: jeff, one of the problems of
'm trying to do the right thing for the environment by walking, using my bike. taking public transportation. adam: how do you save money? when i buy car insurance, i'm buying the coverage, god forbid i should be in an accident. i might hurt somebody. how does your plan work? am i paying per mile? is there base fee? how does this work? do i get come probable coverage. >> yeah so there a base fee. people pay a few cents per mile. base what i happens is. you have you have a few cents per mile. the device tracks how many miles you drove in the month. when you get end of the month. here is rate per mile. here is number of miles i drove. here is what i pay. people see if i drive this many miles less this is how much i save. adam: base fee is 20 and $30, right? >> varies by person but 20 to $30 is the typical that we see. adam: then you will pay anywhere from two to six cents per mile? >> that sends to be what most people see, correct. adam: so, in a worst-case scenario, say i'm paying your most expensive base fee at your most expensive, you know, per mile right. what is my annual insurance cost g
tournament is housed in warren county. what we trio do is foster environment where people and businesses want to come to warren county. so we actually have the lowest marginal tax rates of the surrounding counties and we try taphouse there are environment to where we know we can only do so much in government. so essentially we don't try to do all things to all people. so in a lot of ways we say no more than we say yes, which i think is one of the keys in government is not just thinking about your own political vested interest, 'cause it's easy to make friends in politics by saying yes to everybody. if you think a checkbook is not really yours or the taxpayers, it's someone else's and you can pass out money like it's candy, everybody in the world is going to love you. but when you sit around and look somebody in the eye and say no, they tend not to like you. we've got the ability to do that inside of warren county. >> eric: a lot of municipals are having a hard time because of unions. how is your union contract? have you renegotiated any of those? or are those that were put in place years ago
well-staffed, would be the safest, most secure environment for them. >> reporter: it all began back on september 26th when a parent reported misconduct. the army quickly reviewed surveillance video and found several young children, all under the age of 5, were physically abused. charges of simple assault were filed. but parents were still in the dark. two days later, on september 28th, they are hand adler saying -- they are handed a letter saying only that there is a report of alleged mistreatment and inappropriate behavior by staff. >> all along, this first week when we were being sort of given piecemeal information, denied access to the videotapes, we were also being asked if we wanted to seek medical care for our child. >> reporter: medical care for what? >> for what? obviously we wanted to understand and see with our own eyes, since that evidence was available. >> reporter: she was horrified when she finally saw the surveillance tape of her child. >> obviously you don't ever want to see your child subjected to that kind of assault. these were the caregivers we entrusted them to
in a different environment. i'm not saying that they are more welcoming to media attention. but they came of age in the world where, you know, they have sought after this. and you know, justice scalia has written a book. only william douglas in the past provokes. this sort of personal, you know, publicity seeking on their part, it is different than historically. frankly, i think it's a very good thing. i think when they go out and talk about books, they become little bit more accessible. >> it is funny. because byron white's folder lock ehrlichs, he felt that the relationships with byron right changed. the clerks felt that something changed. now, i don't know whether or not the justice has completely changed, but if you go back and you look at newspaper articles, it does a lot of service to the justices. just livid and talking about how this young man should be taught. anthony schooley himself said that if any of his law clerks do that, they would hunt him down. some would be just as curious of what happened today. >> i would like to ask each of you, all five of you, if you would please tell us
on the environment for four years, but today, lisa jackson announced she's stepping down as administrator of the environmental protection agency. in a statement, jackson said, "i will leave the e.p.a. confident the ship is sailing in the right direction." jackson's tenure was defined in part by efforts to curb carbon emissions. in 2009, she formally declared greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, a threat to public health. that same day, she spoke on "the newshour." >> i join the president in calling for clean energy and climate legislation. and that's because i think having economy-wide legislation sends an unequivocal signal to the private sector that we really mean it, that we're moving towards green energy. >> brown: but a bill to cap greenhouse gases foundered in the democratic-controlled senate and never made it to the president's desk. jackson also pushed a rule to reduce smog, but it faced bitter opposition from republicans and industry over the cost and potential effect on jobs, and last year, president obama ordered it withdrawn. still, environmental groups praised jackson
in that environment is to have it both ways. my view is there is too much classified information. my view is there is too much secrecy in general, and we should probably we think a lot of how we do it. i am inclined to want to see diplomats like susan rice to be as candid as possible with the public. there is another view on that, that we spell too many secrets. -- spill too many secrets. host: this goes back to the 9/11 commission and how intelligence is shared amongst agencies. guest: to me, it is one of these fascinating things that always comes up. whenever there is a catastrophe like 9/11 or the u.s.s. cole, everybody always says they did not share the information. one part of the government had one piece and they did not connect the dots. in the intelligence business, you're getting information from very technical sources or wiretaps or satellites that we do not want other people to know about. people in the business want to usually keep the stuff they collect in as small a group responsible in order to avoid the other big problem of moles and so forth. if you look at wikileaks, thi
the question of canada to be cut? is it politically possible in this environment to get enough republicans and democrats to support a deal that the white house wants on deficit reduction? because they been to the altar so many times on this same issue, taxes, medicare, social security, defense spending, you must wonder, if there's any agreement possible. host: first, commented today from the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell, who will join his colleagues later today at the white house. [video clip] >> i told the president last night we would be happy to look at whatever he proposes. the truth is we are coming up against a hard deadline. as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. republicans are not about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats before or just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that would not be fair to the american people. that said, we will see what the president has to propose. members on both sides will review it. then we will decide how best to proceed. hopefully, there's still time for an agreement of some kind
it for the environment. in part. elizabeth prann is live with more. tell us about the tree elves. can you call them this. >> reporter: we can, they are giving families one less thing to worry about this holiday season, these brothers are known as the kick of pop in the smerp months and sell popular frozen popcicles across atlanta and this southeast end and, now are delivering small, medium or large trees with or without lights and after that pick up the tree and donate them to parks, schools and churches and if you want to you can keep it. customers say it has been a weight lifted off their shoulders during the holiday season and it is eco-friendly, too. >> makes us feel good to support a local business such as the tree elves. rather than go and cut one down or go to home depot and purchase one like we have done in the past. we legislative the idea of supporting tree elves be a supporting king of pops, which we're a big fan of, getting a tree that is sustainable and will be replanted. >> reporter: they have 200 trees and sold out almost immediately and next year will have more trees and more varieties.
in a high radiation and low thermal environment possibly get us to the far end of the solar system. >> nancy? >> not as much what i learned as my on conclusion. i think that gun violence in this country should be treated as domestic terrorism because i don't see any difference between these poor children that get killed in mass shootings and kids in urban areas that are caught in the cross-fire of gang warfare, of drug intimidation and even i see it all as the same kind of terrorizing of american citizens, innocents of all ages. >> i worry about that precisely because i worry that in the wake of tragedy, the policy positions we bring do not come with a sufficient level of rigor and analytical decision and conceptual clarity. we will talk tomorrow about trying to bring that clarity. my thanks to glenn, hina, spencer, and nancy. thanks for getting up. thank you for joining us today for "up." join us tomorrow, sunday morning at 8:00. i'll have former new jersey governor jim florio and dean baker from the center for economic and policy research. coming up, melissa harris-perry. reaction to the j
and rebuild those critical components right back in the same vulnerable environment. we can do this much smarter and cheaper over the long run. if we make the necessary investment to protect that situation from happening again. when it comes to things like propulsion power, signal systems, we know now that some of those critical elements that are absolutely critical to get that service up and running for 10% of the american economy are in very vulnerable places. none of us, no homeowner had their basement flood repeatedly take their best family heirlooms and stores it on the floor of the basement. we might buy some shelving or put the air loams on a shelf -- heirlooms on a shelf. if they say there are no mitigation investments we should put the family heirlooms on the floor of the basement again and wait for the next flood to happen. the other thing you need to remember is when we have these repeated disaster elements, much of those costs would be fema eligible so the taxpayer pays again. and we see no wisdom in that and is why we built but mitigation funding into the president's budget
up. it's already a financially constrained environment. but customers tax rates will go up creating less demand for my products and less revenue for me and less tax revenue for the government. i want to urge congress and senators to vote for keeping our tax cuts in place, especially for the middle class and pushing our fiscal crisis to a balanced approach. go ahead and eliminate those tax cuts for the wealthiest individuals. if we all look at it and tried to consider what was going to work for the best, we needed to look at consumer demand. consumer demand is in the 98% of us who are out there driving the economy. the economy require strong consumer sentiment and strong business. i am urging congress to take action. stop playing games. let's move on. thank you. [applause] >> thank you so much, bob. it's a wonderful to have a sensible message from a a small business who really knows what makes our country work. now, i am honored to introduce to you stu and theresa. the mother of three in maryland and will talk to us about the reality she experiences both house and mother but also wor

[applause] >> speaker boehner, senators udall and bennett, congressman tipton and distinguished guests, on behalf of the secretary, tom vilsack and our chief of the forest service, i would like to say a few words if i can. each year, the capitol christmas tree comes from the u.s. forest service, which is an agency within usda and eachier we -- each year we select that tree from a different forest. this tree is from a small town called meeker, colorado in the white river national forest in the high mountain areas of colorado. 73 it's a spruce tree and feet tall and happens to be 74 years old. it's only the third time in colorado's history that colorado has provided the capitol christmas tree and i'm particularly proud of that since i'm a colorado resident. yay, colorado! [cheers and applause] >> we call this the people's tree for good reason and that's because it comes from our public lands, which are owned by all the
in the street. and if they come here, it's a real nice environment for them. >> everybody get into the ring. we're going to have the rap session. >> this week i want to talk about unity. in this gym, we are a community. >> we not only do boxing, we do youth development. when you walk in the door, we're not only teaching you boxing, we're also teaching you that you know you have to go to school. we have three or four tutors that we're trying to get these kids' grades up. i used to have average like b, cs, now i get as and bs. >> we're going to have to put everything we've got into that one minute. >> i joined boxing to stay away from the streets and to get my life together. so it literally saved my life, boxing. i want these kids to go to college for the next generation will be more powerful in our life. we're more than just tough. we're also smart. >> i want to become a champion. and i want to show people that this neighborhood is not only about violence, that there's people in here in the neighborhood that are determined to become somebody in life. >> if i help two, three kids a year, that's a

as possible. the longer this drags out, the more likely it is that the environment becomes more partisan, more toxic, and we don't put a sensible and gradual debt deal in place in time. so what i hope is that if they come up with this way to avert the tax increase for most american families, they also put in place some kind of process that keeps the discussions going. and really, they need to devote themselves to the discussions. january should not be put your head down and focus on ignoring the problem month. it should be bring the leaders back to washington and really have the talks start in earnest if they don't get this resolved in december which it appears clearly that they're not going to. >> okay. the debt ceiling, we're about to reach that limit next week as well. timothy geithner, the treasure secretariry saying he can keep the economy going for a couple of months. what are your hopes for that debt ceiling debate that no doubt is going to have to happen by what, february? >> the debt ceiling in the past has played an important role that is a speed bump when we are borrowing too quickl
